I am deeply saddened by the news that Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, her staff and members of her community were victims of a horrific and senseless act of violence. This is a tragic hour for our country, and I send my deepest condolences to all those who have lost a loved one as a result of this hideous attack.
On behalf of my constituents in the First District of Rhode Island, I extend my thoughts and prayers to Congresswoman Giffords, her staff, and her constituents, all of whom were victims of this tragedy. They will all remain in our prayers.
